|Title:||Thermodynamics of the nickel and cobalt removal from aqueous solution by layered crystalline organofunctionalized barium phosphate|
|Abstract:||The available hydroxyl groups inside the lamellar cavity of barium phosphate (BaP) reacted with the silylating agents (RO)(3)Si(CH(2))(3)L(x) (L(1)= NH(2), L(2) = NH(CH(2))(2)NH(2), and L(3) = NH(CH(2))(2) NH(CH(2))(2)NH(2)), to yield organofunctionalized BaPSiL(1), BaPSiL(2) and BaPSiL(3) nanomaterials. The amounts of organofunctional groups covalently attached to the inorganic layer were (1.24, 1.46, and 1.23) mmol . g(-1), respectively. The basic nitrogen atoms attached to the distinct pendant organic chains adsorb divalent nickel and cobalt from aqueous solutions, as represented by well-established isotherms. The energetic effects caused by metallic cation interactions were determined through calorimetric titration at the solid/liquid interface and gave a net thermal effect that enabled enthalpy and equilibrium constant calculations. Complete thermodynamic results composed of exothermic enthalpy, negative free Gibbs energy and positive entropy result in a set of favourable cation/basic centre interactions, to indicate that these nanomaterials could be useful tools to eliminate undesirable cations from aqueous systems.
